• AGILE EXPERTS IN BUSINESS + TECHNOLOGY

    A true Agile practice continues to be a top priority for many organizations. Executives pursue it because they are keenly aware of the need to:
     

    • Modernize + transform
    • Solve problems
    • Innovate
    • Improve ways of working
    • Deliver what customers really want
     
    The PMO is following suit, looking for advice and design of an Agile PMO practice. That's what we do.

     

     

  • YOU REALLY CAN HAVE AN AGILE PMO

    IT and the PMO can (and should) partner effectively. We'll show you how.

    For two decades, Agile has been an IT strategy used to build better software. Having seen the successes of CIOs/CTOs, others in the C-Suite are asking if Agile can work in their business units.

     

    There is a movement away from just projects to the concept of thinking of your entire business as a portfolio of products. Sounds simple, but it's a mindset shift. Every business unit, even Finance, HR, and the PMO build and maintain their own products. Not just software, not just what your company sells. In order to move quickly enough and respond to rapid change, a product mindset requires understanding--and protecting--the ecosystem each line of business possesses.

     

    The project-to-product movement introduces new opportunities for a PMO to build and run its product in the same ways that have made Agile the #1 strategy in how work gets done.

     

    Recognizing an Agile PMO is a smart move, PMO experts are still struggling to align their critical responsibilities. To many, Agile sounds like a complete conversion, even an abandonment of practices, management styles, and artifacts that seemed successful in the past. And when technology is involved (as it always is), PMO leaders need help in navigating an Agile framework and relationships.

     

    But for all the confusion--and sometimes bad advice--you really can build an excellent Agile PMO. We're here to help.
